Is it seriously still hot, October?

Autumn in your residence hall, summer outside

Fall is supposed to be upon us. Our brains have already begun to think about Halloween costume ideas, and we can get a sniff of pumpkin spice as we walk past Caffe Strada. However, the leaves are not changing, and there is not a crispness in the air, considering it’s 75 degrees. But just because
